Piece of crap, dirty building, and very unfriendly employees. The front desk woman yelled at me when I dropped my keys coming in. Drop the attitude! There's trash all over the restrooms and they stink. I haven't found one book I wanted to read that was in decent shape there. The best thing is it's next to a park. Parks are good for getting over huge disappointments.
We LOVE this Library!!! We belong to three City Libraries, for different reasons. Hoboken, Union City, Jersey City. Hoboken is probably our preferred/favorite one and definitely the one we borrow from the most. Great Children's Area on 3rd floor, which includes (4) iPads the children can use for (30) minute time slots. There is a wonderful selection of books, audio/visual titles and movies! The Librarians here are extremely courteous, friendly, and spot on helpful. I adore the staff at this library! Street parking only, like many places in Hoboken, but it doesn't take long for us to find a spot within a block. There are also many events for all ages held here you can register for via EventBrite and attend. It is a fantastic local resource where you can borrow things interlibrary, so if they do not have a title you want, it can be reserved and shipped there. Excellent system. There are also e-books you can borrow via their online borrowing system. Included with your library membership is a subscription to Hoopla, which allows borrowing of movies/tv shows, magazines, and ebooks, along with some Rosetta Stone language courses. Convenient messaging system for items you borrow and when they are due. Excellent local resource. Love it! ; )
